One of the biggest and best craft shows of its kind comes to New Jersey this October! The Sugarloaf Craft Festival will be at the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center in Edison beginning November 10 for one weekend only, giving southern Mid-Atlantic residents a chance to experience the country’s best in handmade craft and design.

The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival began in 1975 and has grown ever since, featuring both nationally established and locally emerging independent artisans at every stop. The work found on the festival floor is truly one of a kind, and each artist and craftsperson is meticulously curated and juried to ensure the best in creativity and quality. Anyone with an interest in arts, crafts or design will find themselves in heaven from the moment they walk into this vibrant artistic community.

A Sugarloaf craft show is a chance to buy a unique piece of art or craftsmanship directly from its creator, while also hearing the story behind its creation. With more than 250 exhibitors, you can find yourself in a sea of men’s and women’s fashion and accessories, woodworking, jewelry, photography, glassware, specialty foods and other mediums. Items are available to fit any budget, meaning you’re sure to leave with something memorable.

Both master craftspeople and local artisans alike will be giving live art and craft demonstrations throughout the weekend, letting you see the process from which they create beauty. Sugarloaf also features other artistry in the form of live music, giving you something to listen to while you browse or to enjoy on its own. There’s even an interactive children’s costume theatre, helping make the festival a true family event.

The fall Sugarloaf Crafts Festival of 2016 was a rousing success, and this year’s show looks to be even better, so make your plans today. Discounted single and group tickets are now available for online purchase. Sugarloaf also works with area hotels to provide special rates, helping you plan a whole weekend around one of the biggest arts and crafts festivals on the east coast.

Fun for Kids


Sugarloaf Craft Festivals are fun for the whole family. We provide Children’s Entertainment with Middle Earth Studios, a puppet show designed to enrich your child’s imagination through costume storytelling. Each puppet show engages as many as 90 children of all ages with props and costumes. Every participant becomes a part of the story as soon as the storyteller begins. The story is different every time, and every participant becomes a hero in some way.

Middle Earth Studios has delighted children at festivals and fairs around the country for years with their repertoire of enchanting fairytales and puppet shows. Now your children can enjoy Middle Earth Studios’ newest puppet show, featuring a 15-foot tall grandfather clock that’s really a time machine and the man or rather, the puppet, who invented it!
